An increase in the price of a capital asset or investment such as property, land or securities. A profit will be realised if the asset or investment is sold, in which case capital gains tax (CGT) will likely be payable. CGT may be payable in some jurisdictions even if a capital asset is merely transferred or given away. Inflation and currency movements can affect capital gain.
